Police are now investigating into allegations that Juja MP Francis Waititu (Wakapey) fired Susan Wambui, a receptionist at the Juja CDF office, after she resisted his sexual advances.
He has been accused of sending messages demanding sexual favours as condition to retain her job. In October last year, the MP suddenly stopped paying her salary without explanation.
Since then, has been sending her all sorts of sensational text messages, threatening to sack her unless she gave in to his demands, warning her that “the world was not a place for free things, but tit-for-tat.”
In one of the messages sent to her on October 23 last year, the MP allegedly states: “You have refused to do what I wanted. Now I am employing another person on your behalf. Hii dunia kila kitu ni nipe nikupe (in this world things are give-and-take). Goodbye.”
While sharing the outrage of Kenyans that the Juja MP has not resigned following his sex scandal, what catches my eye are his words of seduction from the texts he sent the lady. “Nataka kukula hizo vitu”. This guy is as romantic as a pot holed road! Surely even when seeking illicit sex, how does “umekataa nisikule hizo vitu” help your case?
What happened to the smooth men who swept women off their feet with poetry, flowers, moon lit dinners and a manly presence before holding their hands gently and whispering their intentions sweetly in their ears? Or was I the last of that generation? Our ancestors taught us that when you treat her like a Queen, she will make you a King without asking for it! Or is the MP just a confirmation of the stereotypes we hold about romance and regions in Kenya?
Ati “ulikataa nisikule hizo vitu”. The devil is a liar.
